O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles. Psalms 43:3

And as all have not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith. D&C 88:118

Ice Cream in a Bag!

You might be a homeschooler if you do science lessons while on a vacation/family trip…

July Utah 2013 070 One day we decided to do some science activities. I opened up e-Science and found an experiment that included making ice cream. What could be better than exploring thermodynamics by making ice cream with a bunch of kids!? Getting out a lot of energy before having ice cream of course…

Nothing like a game of catch with a frozen bag of ice, coconut milk, sugar, peanut butter, and chocolate powder…

Basically, you take your COLD ice cream ingredients and seal them in a freezer quart size bag. Place that inside a gallon freezer bag with lots of ice and  a heaping scoop of rock salt. Then SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE until the ice cream is frozen. It takes about 5-10 minutes of shaking. I suggest wrapping a dishtowel around the bag after it gets really cold because it drips water and the towel helps it to not be too cold on your hands.
